It will take 10 minutes just to figure how to work the bulb into the housing...I have small hands and I couldnt get my hands in there to have any leverage to turn the back of bulb...you cannot just push bulb down by holding it and put it into the housing.

And marking with sharpie doesnt work now as the heat sinks are black...and if you mark it with anything else when you grab and twist ink/paint(or whatever you used) rubs off so you are essentially doing it blindly just as if you didnt mark it to begin with.

can anyone tell Im abit frustrated?......this is much more difficult than installing an entire HID kit which I have done many times, as there are severe access issues here.
I agree 100%!! I tried for about 30 minutes and couldn't get it in. Called my son over, his hands are much smaller, but he couldn't get it in and didnt really care to try longer that 3 minutes. I'm going to give it another shot this weekend when I have more time.
